Ah, Fleshgod Apocalypse in a dungeon, chained to bars and screaming No. And all that to the tune of a thunderous metal avalanche that is so typically FA. Well, that’s exactly what I needed this Sunday morning with my bacon and eggs.

Okay, this video here will by no means match the superb quality of Monnalisa. But as to momentary impact, an early morning metal hit, and full tilt download of the animal power this band can muster, this one is stellar.

No bitches about sad times1), false prophets, and that music will save you anyway. … [...] Click to raid more!

For those who thought that King contained enough full metal jacket for a lifetime, come again. Because Veleno is an all-out attack on your metallic sensory system. A friggin’ 62 minutes of full, frontal assault, filled to the brim with sharp-edged steel. The … [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider Review - Fleshgod Apocalypse - King - Album Cover

Fleshgod Apocalypse is a relatively young band. They formed in 2007 in Perugia/Italy. You know, the medieval city with the escalators that move you from the catacombs to the light. A place of epic murder trials, loads of chocolate, and pasta.

How very fitting a background for the Machiavellian theme employed in this album. And not yet quite 10 years into the game, they came a hell of a long way in a very short time. And I am saying this now because their style is really difficult to match in terms of complexity. Many a band certainly got some inspiration off … [...] Click to raid more!
